Wash Day Chronicles: 49 Weeks Post (8-2-14)

Yes! You read that right 49 WEEKS POST! I never thought I would say that. lol Anyway, let's get into this wash day.

Not pictured Bananabae Conditioner 

{1} I sprayed my hair with water to dampen it and applied the E'TAE Carmel Treatment. I left it in for about 2 hours. Just like I reported after my first use of  the treatment, my hair felt soft and so nice to the touch.
{2} The directions for the Carmel calls for it to be SHAMPOOED out NOT COWASHED out. So I used my Cream and Coco Cocobutter Milkshake Soap to shampoo out the Carmel Treatment. I am really feeling this shampoo bar. It does what I love for my shampoos/shampoo bars to do which is to cleanse but not make my hair feel super dry in the process. I would recommend this shampoo bar. It lathers really well too.
{3} As my rinse out conditioner I use Hairitage Hydration's Bananabae Conditioner. I finally used this conditioner up. I have had about a third of this conditioner left in the bottle for awhile now. I was tired of looking at it. My hair felt very soft when I rinsed it out and after I t-shirt dried. Don't get me wrong I like the conditioner but I am so trying to get this stash down. I'll do an update on that. Thanks to FancyFlairLady for reminding me. lol
{4} After t-shirt drying, I started the detangling process. The front area of my hair detangled pretty easily. The back not so much. Which I is one of the reasons why I used three different leave-ins. The leave-ins I used were Hairitage Hydration's Soft Coconut Marshmallows (SCM) and Marshmallow Springs (HHMS). I also used the Leave-In Conditioner from Silk Hydration by L. Jones. I used the Hairitage Hydration products because I haven't really been using them lately. I am mad that I haven't. These are still great products. I pulled out the Silk Hydration by L. Jones Leave-In because it helps to get rid of knots. I had the knots because I washed the back section in one big section instead of two. I normally don't have too much of problem with this but sometimes the down side rears it's ugly head. The section right in the middle of my head had some pesky knots that needed to be dealt with. lol Despite that, I didn't loose more hair than I normally do when I detangle. 
{5} I applied my Organix Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum to seal and to add some protein. Flat twisted the best that I could to air dry and stretch my roots. I do not plan on trying a twistout. This is strictly to stretch my new growth. I'm trying another way to do that instead of using a blow dryer. I took a tip from Ms. VaughnTV and added some bobby pins right the root to help keep them from puffing up. I am writing this the next day and my roots are not puffy at all.

Overall it was a decent wash day. I also have had the itch to go and get my hair straightened last month. But after my last appointment at Huetiful in June I decided to take a bit of break from heat until my next appointment which is on the 27th of this month. Which is also my 31st birthday. VIRGOS RULE! lol I am sticking to not getting my hair done until then just see how the condition of my hair is after almost 2 months of no heat and also as a 1 year post relaxer treat. 



  1. Sounds like a great wash day! Well done on getting to 1 year post relaxer and woop woop to the pending birthday celebrations!
